I've very guilty of that. My DH and I are always looking for good cruise clothes.
Cruise clothes that are easy to pack and wrinkle resistent. We've found some wonderful deals at second hand stores. The up-scale ones...like the American Cancer Society. Ours has some really really GREAT travel wear! (why? Don't know...just it's location I guess)
Now, I have had this happen to me...I've bought something that I thought would travel well, and would look good too...only to be disappointed! I bought a blouse from a well known mail order travel store...It was suppose to be wrinkle resistent...when I opened up the package...it was wrinkled...That should have been a red light. I didn't take the warning...and had to return the blouse after 'cruise failure'
